The luscious twin lensed loveliness of the lubitel was what we were learning about on a super crisp January Sunday! Find out how we got down in trendy Chinatown for the celebration of the Chinese New Year.
The luscious twin lensed loveliness of the Lubitel was what we were learning about on a super crisp January Sunday!
We started out going over all the ins and outs of this fully manual camera, covering everything from aperture to film types and everything in between!
Cameras fully loaded and ready to go, we ventured out into a super busy china town to see the celebrations for Chinese New Year. We heard the drums pounding and managed to catch a glimpse of dragon over the crowds’ heads.
Then we headed down to Trafalgar square, taking time to slow down and peer at the world through our waist level viewfinders. With the chill biting at our fingertips we finished shooting on our way home, but not before passing a huge red man still celebrating the year of the Dragon.
